In fact, this is such a touchy issue, that you might eveYorkie dogn be rejected by certain companies if you happen to own one of their “banned breeds.” Large and powerful dogs such as Akitas, Alaskan Malamutes, Chows, Dobermans, German Sheperds, Pit Bulls, Presa Canarios, Rottweilers, Siberian Huskies, Staffordshire Bull Terriers and any form of Wolf hybrid are the primary targets of insurance company coverage rate hikes or coverage limitations. If you own one of these breeds, make sure that your insurance carrier knows that you have this animal and has written an endorsement for your animal. While a large dog may be fun to have, owning a small breed dog like a yorkie, poodle or other small dog is a safe bet when it comes to making sure that you will not pay extra for your homeowner’s insurance.
